Upgraded from Hyundai Elite i20 to VW Virtus: Few initial observations

The car is amazingly stable in the corners and picks up speed like a breeze.

BHPian Venkygupta recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Took delivery of the Virtus 1.0 Topline AT yesterday. The car is an absolute pleasure to drive. The build quality felt good to me. The buttons from the cabin lights are a bit stiff and make noise when pressed, but in no way, I feel that they might fall off on bad roads.

Coming from an Elite i20, the car feels much more premium. The brake sound on really low speeds does exist but nothing to worry about as per my SA and neither did I feel that it is an issue which would bother me very much.

Overall I can definitely say that driving it made me happy and would surely recommend others to try the car for themselves before making up their mind.

This road is the New Raipur project. 70-80kms of planned, plain, deserted road.

The car is amazingly stable in the corners and picks up speed like a breeze.

I have one very very small question but you’d be surprised to know that even my SA does not know the answer to it, does this car not have a mute button on the steering wheel? Cause I have not been able to locate one.

Here's what BHPian Pequod had to say about the matter:

Don’t think there is one, but then again it took me 22 days to figure out how to answer calls using the controls on the steering.

On a different note, I had the 1000 km ‘Swagat’ check-up done last Saturday. General check with fluid top-ups (if necessary) and wash. Also received a complimentary VW branded car care kit! Gave the car around 12:00 pm and received it back around 17:30.

Received the extended warranty and service pack documents yesterday, 23 days after taking delivery of the car.

This is what’s offered under the Service Value Package (Rs.31999/- for 4 years); existing VAG owners and other members may like to weigh in on what this exactly means.
